   I can see where that would be an issue when you're downloading RAW 6.3MP 
   images with embedded large/superfine JPEGs!

Actually, I store a small/coarse JPEG with the RAW file.  No need for
both a decent quality JPEG and a RAW.

   It should be easy to do.  Basically, you need to have the script
   figure out the model of the camera.  I can think of three ways:

I'd like to try to figure it out using a card reader rather than the
camera, if that's possible.
